In the 1950s Los Cabos was a wild, free place at the southernmost tip of the Baja California, where coyotes ran free under the starry southern skies, and thatched fishing huts huddled in villages along the pristine coastline. It was here, on a plot of 400 acres of near virgin wonderland, accessible only by yacht or helicopter, that Don Abelardo Rodriguez, son of the Mexican president, and his wife, Hollywood star Lucille Bremmer, built the first resort in Los Cabos.

Their 15-room luxury hideaway quickly drew an exclusive guestlist including John Wayne, Lucille Ball, and the former United States President, Dwight D. Eisenhower, drawn by its old-world luxury, ambassadorial discretion, and exhilarating deep-sea fishing.

The crystal clear waters (“the world’s aquarium” as Jacques Cousteau once called them) were highly prized by the original inhabitants, the Pericúes Indians, who dived for pearls, as well as hunting in the desert, leaving behind rock art of dart-riddled deer. Following the arrival of Hernán Cortés in 1535, the region became known for its Je suit missionaries, pirates, soldiers of fortune, and pearl industry. To this day, Palmilla Beach remains one of the most pristine and few swimmable beaches in the destination.


Overseen by our expert kids’ counsellors, our programs for 4 to 11-year-olds offer fun experiences. Hunt for treasure, track lizards, paint ceramics, and make (and smash!) piñatas; every day offers new activities. Reserve our extra excursions for special interests 24-hours in advance.
